The $250 Million Star Plus Initiative October 2019
So Much More Than A Paint Job. This $250 Million Initiative Transforms Our Star Class Room For Stretching Out.
“They just don’t build ships like this anymore. We are keeping the best elements and designs from these iconic vessels and re-envisioning them for the modern guest.”
— Ray Chung, Director Of Design, The Johnson Studio At Cooper Carry
WHEN OUR GUESTS TELL US they want more of what they love on Windstar, we take it as seriously as captain’s orders. That’s why we’ve embarked on a comprehensive renovation of our three all-suite Star Class ships — Star Breeze, Star Legend and Star Pride. So you get even more suites to choose from, more delight on deck, and more to explore on board.
You’ll love our beautiful new teak sundeck and iconic, cascading pool, 50 new impeccably-designed suites, gorgeous new bathrooms in all suites, and exciting menus at our new dining venues. There are also improvements behind the scenes that will help our crew serve you even better and make our Star Class ships more environmentally friendly than ever.
Like all of our small ships, our Star Class, holding only 312 guests, will continue to call at some of the world’s smallest and most interesting ports. And you’ll still enjoy the intimate environment and highly-personalized service that Windstar offers with our enviable ratio of crew to guests.
“The Initiative is not about getting bigger, it’s about offering our guests more of what they love about Windstar. Each ship will carry 312 guests total which nearly matches the capacity for Wind Surf.
The additional capacity keeps us squarely in the under 350 category. We will continue to offer the world’s best small ship experience but with more amenities that our guests have been asking us for like additional dining and an expanded spa and fitness center. We are making these improvements to ensure these beloved ships may continue to operate well into the future.”
— John Delaney, President, Windstar Cruises

While other cruise lines might use a transformation as an opportunity to add a few water slides, we chose to enhance your experience of the sea and sky with a gorgeous elevated pool and whirlpool.
We’ve expanded the sundeck so you have more room to sunbathe and relax. What’s more, you can also explore the brand new Star Grill by Steven Raichlen, or sip on a Star Bar cocktail.

After an exhilarating day of hiking, watersports, or exploring the world’s most interesting ports like a local, you can retreat to our beautiful new spa with serene treatment rooms, fitness center, motion studio, and salon.
